THE IDT’S PERFORMANCE INFORMATION FOT THE 2012/13 FINANCIAL YEAR
The IDT’s key performance drivers are based on three areas of its mandate; and these are:
· Projected turnover
· Delivery or programme spend
· Empowerment and work opportunities
In terms of the projected turnover, the organisation generated a turnover of R7.2 billion against a set target of R5.5 billion. This was 131 percent over-achievement above a set target. For the forthcoming three-year MTEF period, the organisation is projecting to have a programme spend of R 20 billion.
The second performance driver of the IDT was based on the value of programme spend. For this target the IDT delivered programmes to the value of R 5.6 billion against a target of R4.5 billion. This was a 25 percent over-achievement and this surpassed the organisation’s performance for previous 4 years.
The third driver of the organisation’s performance was based on the empowerment and work opportunities it provided to the designated groups. In terms of its Broad-Based-Black-Economic-Empowerment (BBBEE), the IDT spent R3.7 billion of its total annual expenditure on Black service providers. For its women empowerment opportunities the IDT spent R1 billion of its total programme spend. This was an 18 percent achievement and it was attributed mainly to the IDT’s Contractor Development Programme which has been running for more than 4 years.
Lastly, the IDT created 76 981 work opportunities through its Social Infrastructure delivery programmes and the Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP).
